Forum: faqs Subject: Site not archived, is it something we inadvertently did?

Our site, http://www.akban.org, is not archived. Is there anything we can reverse it?

Thank you
Yossi

first, folders that are listed in your robots.txt file will not be added to wayback machine:
http://www.akban.org/robots.txt
second, if you've already submitted your site for archiving, it should appear in WM about A YEAR after the first crawl.

The site http://www.akban.org was archived several times in 2004, once in 2007 and that's it.
We asked Alexa to crawl it several times during the last couple of years and it didn't help.
Is there anywhere else that might be preventing archiving?
This site is a serious effort to document martial arts in a semantic wiki.

Thanks

look at this:

http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.akban.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page
http://web.archive.org/web/*/akban.org/*

seems like pages from your site are archived. last results are from about a year ago, which is normal.

http://web.archive.org/web/*hh_/www.akban.org/

i think akban.org itself is not in archive since 2007 because the wayback cannot archive redirect pages. it can archive only actual pages (in your case, www.akban.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page )

Thanks for your responses,
We do not redirect this site at all! http://www.akban.org is not a redirect of any sort.

Like the Internet archive we are documenting, on a tiny scale general martial arts. to accommodate the general nature of the site, we redirected, and still do our old url: (ninjutsu.co.il) into the akban url.

So I don't think that we redirect akban.org. Can you think of another explanation?

To be precise, we redirect akban.org to www.akban.org. This is a totally acceptable practice and was recent enough so it cannot explain why akban.org has never been indexed.

sorry, i was not referring to such kind of redirects. what i wanted to say is that your site's main page seemingly is not located anywhere on the site, but generated on-the-fly by the php server, which could be the cause of the trouble (see http://www.archive.org/about/faqs.php#12).

Thank you.
We will try to correct it by generating html pages

Forum: faqs Subject: Archiving a php site

It seems that I was hasty in agreeing to the Internet archive not suceeding to archive php generated sites.

Not only is the archive full of archived PHP sites but it archived akban.org at Jan. 2008 when it was just the same site.

Is there anywhere we can check why our site, all 1000's of pages of original content in Hebrew Japanese and English is not archived since 2008?
